Atlanta based graffiti artist Hense got to work with the help of a small crew, using rollers, brushes, spray paint, inks, acrylics, mops, enamels and paint sprayers to cover every inch of a church. It took several weeks, but the rainbow splattered building is all that’s left from its white facade. In describing the project, Hense said, “Taking an existing building like the church and painting the entire thing re-contextualizes it and makes it a sculptural object. We really wanted to turn the church into a three-dimensional piece of artwork.”

In an e-mail to the Huffington Post, Hense described the reaction to the extreme makeover as overwhelmingly positive, with a few exceptions. “There were a few people who thought of it as desecrating on the church,” he wrote. “Although once it was explained that it was a work in progress and had positive thought behind the gestures, colors and marks, they generally understood.”
